A wonderful hotel in the heart of Rome. Beautifully decorated with all kinds of art to explore. We were greeted with professional and friendly staff, given sparkling wine and made to feel very at home. Every little request was catered for and nothing was too much trouble from the airport limousine transfer to fulfilling our request for a balcony room. The rooms are not huge but perfectly reasonable, comfortable and well designed. The host/concierge recommended and reserved some very nice restaurants for us, provided maps and gave directions. There are 2 reasons that my review falls short of 5*. Firstly, there are no tea and coffee facilities in the room. Secondly, the rooms although lovely are paper thin. We were in one half of what must have been adjoining rooms. When the family with young children were in their room next door we could hear every word, noise and breath that they made, including very early in the morning. I'm sure that they had the exact same problem as us because one evening after dinner we were watching the tv, I might add, very quietly as we're were mindful of the family next door. We got a call from reception asking us to turn the sound down. So, just bear this in mind if you are looking for a peaceful or romantic break.
